The Righteous Gemstones
“I Speak in the Tongues of Men and Angels” (A-) / season premiere
“After I Leave, Savage Wolves Will Come” (A)
Adding actors as wild as Eric Andre and Eric Roberts only adds to a wildly successful ensemble. This means that – likely only temporarily – Kelvin (Adam DeVine) gets short shrift. But his gaggle of Power Team-wannabes and the sycophantic Keefe still make for great sight gags.
The show feels even better-directed than before. Extended scenes like the flashback that begins the scene and Gideon’s ride through the abandoned areas of the Gemstone compound have a deft touch to them. The show is as ridiculous as ever, but the people who make it so are even more committed.
